I heard a really strange chirping noise, and as I approached the bush, she just came running towards me, hissing at me at first, but then I picked her up and she melted, saying “Finally, thank you! I’ve been screaming out here forever.”
I picked up a hare hunter on my chest and went to my stuff to find a bowl or something to put water in. As I turned on the hose, it spilled onto the floor and she just ran over and started drinking from the water puddles on the ground. So I found a frisbee in my car and filled it with water, and she just drank and drank.
I had cat food in my car for my cat, so I grabbed some of it and gave it to her. She just ate it, sat with me, and didn’t want to leave my side. She sat on my shoulder and just wanted to stay there, but it was a place where I kept my horses. I had to do what I had to do, so I locked her in the taxi head and said, “Okay, I’ll be right back.”
I come back, open the door, and she just follows me everywhere. Everywhere I go, she follows me back and forth, back and forth. She didn’t want to leave my side at all, and as soon as she runs to me, I knew automatically that she would stay with me forever.
I don’t know why I had to do that; it’s not like I needed another cat. I loaded her into my car and put her in a crate on top of that blanket. She kind of just lay there the whole way home, and when I got home, I noticed how many fleas she had. So I bathed her immediately.
I loved it when she was wet and her ears looked so big. She looked very nervous and looked like a different cat. She slept for the rest of the night, and the next morning, she was a different kitten. She was super spunky and started to come out of her shell and feel good about herself. She had no fear of the other cats.
She had no fear of the dogs; she was fearless. She might have weighed two pounds, and this tiny thing was chasing my dog around the living room. My sphinx cat grew; you could see him kind of paw her, and then she pawed him back and then ran away, and that’s probably one of my favorite videos.
It’s been five or six months now, and today she’s still the feisty little troublemaker who will kick their butt. I just think that it was pure luck to bring her to the right place at the right time. That’s why I wanted to name her something lucky, so I came up with a charm that I think fits her well. She’s a character.
